They're at the max amount of users right now, but I can send an invite once it opens again. I think I'll need an email.

How about trying to lawfully pay for the media you consume sometime, ribbiatch.
I saw the actual Hope Davis in Captain America: Civil War recently, and I couldn't help but be reminded of you.

Any recommendations for books on film? I'm trying way too hard to come up with interesting stuff to say about the stuff I watch and I need a little help.

Urgh I only managed to snatch like 3 things from the freeleech cus the servers were so overloaded... found a bunch of awesome looking old Syrian films (never knew they had a functional film industry in the 70s and 80s) including one that's an adaptation of the story Men in the Sun

Could be an adblocker thing. Maybe it's blocking the captcha code thing. Or maybe just a browser thing. Try Chrome/firefox/Waterfox/InternetExplorer/Edge/Safari and such.
I actually should check my KG account. See if it still works.
